Mozdzen, Dietrich & Pantling Charge Ahead as EPT Monte-Carlo Day 3 Bubble Bursts



Clayton Mozdzen

Canadians Clayton “slammedfire” Mozdzen, Michael “pipedream17” Dietrich and Andrew “clockwyze” Pantling are all now in the money in the Monte-Carlo Casino & EPT Grand Final Main Event.


At the time of writing, less than 70 players remain of the original 665 entries, guarantying our remaining players a pay-day of at least €20,000. Of course however, they will have their eyes on the €1,500,000 top prize; just under $2,000,000 when converted to Canadian dollars.


Manitoba’s Mozdzen came pretty damn close to his first EPT title already this year in Madrid; finishing 14th out of 477 in the 5000 euro event. We can be sure he’ll be looking to get the job done here and it just so happens he has some familiar company at his table; “@slammedfire: Wow and who sits next to me!! None other than the guy I’m here with! Mike “pipedream17” he is my direct left!!!”


Ontario’s Michael “pipedream17” Dietrich has been a longtime top 10 online player according to the rankings. With more that $4,200,000 in combined online and live MTT winnings, this isn’t real much of a ”pipedream” at all for Dietrich and far from his first picnic when it comes to high pressure poker.


Both players are now sitting above average stack near the time of press, with 66 players left and the day scheduled to play down to 24.


Also originally hailing from Ontario, (though he now makes Malta home) is high stakes cash game legend Andrew “ClockWyze” Pantling. Though he has nearly $850,000 in live tournament poker winnings, Pantling’s reputation as a dangerous opponent on the felts is mainly credited to crushing players for millions in the $25/$50 plus PLO and Hold’em cash games online. While his identity was well guarded for quite some time, the cat is out of the bag now. After narrowly missing a World Series Europe bracelet with a heads-up finish to Phil Laak in 2010, as well as winning the EPT Monte- Carlo €5,000 Heads Up just prior, it’a definitely no secret that Pantling also has tournament game.


Good luck boys!




At the dinner break, Mozdzen is sitting in the top ten chip counts, with 50 players remaining. The next money jump will be to €25,000 when 48 remain. Pantling and Dietrich appear to be sitting near average.

I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
